Big Rock Canyons

Canyoning near Christchurch means the canyons have vibrant green mosses and ferns all over the walls with water so clean you can drink it... above us? Usually sunshine and beautiful pristine NZ beech forest. What lays beneath the next horizon line? If it's shallow... we can rappel/abseil down through the spray of the waterfall or fly off the edge on a zipline. If it's deep enough, an exciting slide awaits... if you're feeling courageous... jump! We have two main tours, Tui Canyon from Christchurch (half day) OR Kaumira Canyon from Geraldine (one of the best full day activities in NZ). With almost 30 years of experience from 19 different countries world wide you're in safe hands! We're not just good looking, we're also great fun!
